Today we revisit the 2000 Power of the Jedi Battle Droid (Security) figure. A nice looking sculpt, but as you know I am not a fan of the pre-posed figures. One positive thing is that this Battle Droid has tight leg joints and allows him to stand without any issues. This figure has 10 points of articulation which are Head, Neck, Shoulders, Elbows, Hips, and Knees. He is packed with a Blaster.

Variations:
• Card Back #571100.0000
• Card Back #571100.0100
• Card Back #571100.0400

Enjoy the new HD

In this installment of the StarWars.com 10, they are picking the galaxy’s top alien species, from a teddy-bear tribe to the residents of Ryloth. For this list, they are focusing on aliens from the Star Wars films, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Star Wars Rebels, ranking them on design, impact, and cool factor.

Check out the video on the Star Wars YouTube Channel.

Go behind the scenes of Star Wars: Battle Pod, a new arcade shooter from Lucasfilm, Disney Interactive, and Bandai Namco, in this special video from StarWars.com.

Star Wars: Battle Pod, with an enveloping dome screen, air blasts, and rumble, redefines the Star Wars arcade experience for a new generation. The first Star Wars game ever was an arcade shooter, released in 1983, and many other Star Wars arcade games followed through the years -- Star Wars: Battle Pod hearkens back to that tradition.

The 2014 Black Series 6-Inch #07 Clone Trooper (Sergeant) figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. He is just a repaint of the 2014 #14 Clone Trooper figure.

The figure looks great, but it took me a while to find one with a decent paint application, resulting in the delay of me photographing this figure.

Anyways enjoy all the new HD Pics!

The Power of the Jedi Chewbacca (Millennium Falcon Mechanic) figure was released back in 2000 and was packed on a Collection 1 card. A great looking sculpt of Chewy, but I wish Hasbro gave his left elbow articulation like they did with his right elbow. Chewbacca Has 6 points of articulation which are Shoulders, Right Elbow, Waist, and Hips. He includes RW-80 Welding Googles and a Welding Torch.

Variations:
• Card Back #571090.0300

Stopped by my local Disney Store here in Texas and the entire Star Wars Section was replenished for the first time since Christmas. Was hoping to see some of the newer Black Series figures, but all they had were the Ree-Yees Wave.

If your into the small DIE Cast vehicles, they had a pretty good deal. If you buy 2 or more they are only $7 each.

Did the rounds today and stopped by my local Toys R Us, Target, and Walmart and the pegs and shelves are still bare. Its been pretty much this way since mid November.

What is odd is all of the other toy lines that Hasbro produces i.e. Transformers, G I Joe, and etc have been fully replenished and continually restocked on a weekly basis.

This just does not make sense. Whats going on with the Star Wars Line? No Rebels Saga Legends, Black Series or anything.

The only items to be found are Star

Today I have added the 2000 Power of the Jedi Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Jedi Knight) figure to our HD Photo Gallery. Hasbro did a good job on the sculpt and gave him 8 points of articulation which is Head, Shoulders, Elbows, Waist, and Hips. Ben Includes a Lightsaber and Lightsaber Hilt.

Variations:

Story Line: When Zeb loses Chopper in a game of cards to Lando Calrissian, the crew of the Ghost agrees to help the smooth-talking scoundrel make a dangerous cargo run in trade for their astromech. But when Lando plots a risky scheme to trade Hera for secret cargo, the crew gets far more than it bargained for.

Just read through Marvel's Star Wars #1 comic, and have to say Marvel has regained my interest once again.

I just wanted to remind the comic fans out there that Marvel will be releasing Darth Vader #1 on 2/11/15 and Princess Leia #1 on 3/4/15. These stories will take place after the events of Episode IV: A New Hope. Should be pretty interesting. Be sure to preorder your copy!

StarWars.com has given us a first look at some Kanan: The Last Padawan art straight from the sketchbook of Pepe Larraz, penciller of Marvel's upcoming Comic.

The Power of the Jedi Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) figure was released back in 2000 on a Collection 1 card and retailed for $4.99. The figure looks great and I really like the clear hemet that allows you to see Vader's skull. He has 8 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Right Bicep, Right Wrist, Waist, and Hips. Vader is packed with a Lightsaber and Removable Cape.

Variations:
• Long Saber.
• Short Saber.

Errors:
• All silver Saber Hilt.

Target's Exclusive Star Wars AT-DP Vehicle and Driver Figure has been listed at Target.com. Don't get to excited yet as these are listed as out of stock online. You can use the "Find in Store" feature on their page but there is another issue.

This vehicle shares the exact same DPCI (087-06-1382) with all the other Class II Vehicles that Target sells. So if your local store shows DPCI 087-06-1382 in stock there is no telling which vehicle they actually have in stock.

I talked to those in my

Just when you thought we seen all of the Marvel's Star Wars #01 variant Covers along comes another. StarWars.com has revealed a new Variant Cover that is exclusive to Loot Crate. This fully-painted cover was done by acclaimed artist Gabriele Dell’Otto, with Han Solo and Chewbacca mid-battle during the post-A New Hope era.

Head on over to StarWars.com for the full story and images.

Reader "Mark" has come across a Black Series 3.75" Yoda #06 figure with a brown colored Blissl (Musical Instrument that hangs around his neck) & Rope that he found at his local Target store. Previously Yoda's Blissl & Rope has been painted Dark Charcoal and Maroon.

So the question is, did Hasbro make a error and just not paint this Yoda's Blissl or is there a change coming? Let us know if you found the Brown Blissl as well.

Just a reminder that Marvel's Star Wars (2015) #1 Comic has been released today in both print and digital formats.

StarWars.com has posted a interesting article and images of the official 2015 Star Wars Celebration Show Badges and Posters, including a Rebels variant Poster, which were created by Craig Drake.

Added the 2014 Rebels Saga Legends Mission Series: MS02 C-3PO and R2-D2 figure set to our HD Photo Gallery today. With the addition of this set, the entire first wave can now be viewed in our Gallery.

Variations:
• No Disney XD Sticker
